I'm not Impressed. More fake carbon, Akrapovic exhaust and more suede.

An LSd, Recaros, lighter wheels or a power tweak would have been great!

So everyone got super excited about the possible release of the Meg engined Clio and this is what they've actually decided to do??

What the f**k are Renault doing?
If you ever read the Top Gear Magazine back in the early 2000s it had a list of every manufacturer and every car on sale. Each company had a little dit, stuff like best model, worst model etc. The description for Renault was 'quirky french manufacturer with often suicidal design tendencies'

More and more I'm reminded of just how accurate that statement was.

You know what's funny I was making an estimate the other day and the sub model list on a basic MK3 was about 19/20.
 
More rubbish clio 'special' additions, we shouldn't be surprised (gordini, Raider, silverstone e.t.c) Anyone remember when they made proper limited editions? Williams? v6? trophy? now they just change the colour!

Agree it's nothing special compared to what we have had in the past... but at the same time it actually looks pretty good.
 
They should have just done a 220 Trophy-R, proper LSD, Recaro’s, Brembo’s, perhaps an Tyre choice, Cup 2’s maybe and a few other bits and bobs, and even if they did that and charged like 25-27k people would still buy one.

  Several
Manufacturers love colour editions like this. They're cheap to produce and people buy them. Look how many of the two tone Fiestas you see.
 
  Rs200t lux
Still can’t believe Renault won’t make the version 80 people of a cliosport forum want.

Wake up Renault!
I agree wake up renault
All you’ve done is change the colour
Renault must think we are all zipped up the back of the head if they think this counts as a limited edition
 

The Boosh!

Just to be clear, there is demand for this product in other markets which is why it was launched, however we made the decision it wasn’t suitable for the UK.

They just don’t do special editions in general as they used to(every manufacturer)
 
  Megane 275 Cup-S
Renault are aiming at the masses unfortunately, sales/money talks. They can't afford not to try and compete with other manufacturers which is to detriment of us purists! At least the RS Megane comes with a manual option.
 
  Rs200t lux
What the f**k are Renault doing?
I totally agree
renault cocked up with not getting the rs200t right and they are just getting worse
How can they say adding some black and carbon make a special edition ,
Mind you renault say the carbon air vents change the airspeed and make the side windows dentist quicker ,

It’s Recaro seats
A tuned engine
Big brakes
More downforce etc
That Make a special edition
If renault had added recaro seats , brembo brakes and a decent exhaust to the 200T
They would have wiped the floor in the hot hatch bracket
But instead of doing this they added a stupid sound system that can make the car sound like a Nissan GT-R or a motorbike
For f**k sake it’s a car not a motorbike and if I wanted it to sound like a gtr I would have bought a f**king gtr
And the spaceship sound they added it doesn’t sound like any space ship I’ve heard it’s more like a dolphin farting under the water
f**k sake renault get your act together and speak to the guys out in the field about what they want in a car

Completely agree with this.

The reason Renault haven’t changed it from a Trophy is because it’s very good as it is. I like the black with the graphics etc and I can’t understand why you slate things which you have never driven. Not long ago the Clio 3 rs was rubbish.
